Outside Aux. Shower

Wife has been pleading with me to modify the outside aux shower to make it more "user friendly". Silly placement on loeft side means when you want to use it your right next to campground power supply, sewer, and standing under the slideout. That, and hose is only 6 feet long. When she wants to give the pups a bath, almost impossible to do it right.
Found a new faucet assembly by Phoenix that has a quick dissconnect. Got it on Amazon along with their quick dissconnect hose attachment.
Took all of 10 minutes to install, and have a good quality collapsable hose on order.
Now she can just run the hose around the back of the Lexi, under the awning on right side, and do a proper job.

Nice work. Sounds like bad placement on the original. What were they thinking?

Thanks. It actually works quite well. When under campground pressure, hose I bought fully expands. When using pump only, hose still expands, but dosen't get as "rigid". Less pressure I guess.
Got one of the better collapasable hoses with brass fittings. Came with a nice spray nozzle. Now the better half can give the pups a bath while under the awning and on the mat, using warm water. Great for rinsing off muddy feet, flipflops, ect. while under the awning.
With the original set up, you had to stand in the dirt/grass right next to the rig's wall, and as the hose was only 6 feet long, everything under the hose got wet/muddy. Impossible to give the pups a good bath.
In the pic, the aux shower is the small door right next to the black gas cap. It sits just under the slideout when it's open. Really stupid design for something that could be so useful.

Like your hitch mounted spare too. My truck spare is bolted underneath and thats the road service guys problem to get it out. I dolly our toad and right now it's spare is taking up basement space, so I might copy your mount. Ooops, forgot to start separate thread.
